I am a Tasmanian artist and designer who paints landscapes in acrylic. I love to explore colour and light, negative space and leave a little for the imagination. I also love to create an inviting atmosphere to entice the viewer to the location i’m painting.
I spent 15 years in Melbourne and Brisbane working in ad agencies and returned to Tasmania with my young family 6 years ago where I now work as the Creative Director at a Marketing and PR consultancy.
After receiving a Bachelor of Economics at the University of Tasmania, I went back to Uni and found my calling in graphic design and drawing at The Tasmanian School of Art at Hunter Street. I was also awarded the top gong at the prestigious Award School.
I have always had a love for drawing and painting and spend every spare opportunity honing my skills or teaching the kids.
I have taken part in joint exhibitions for many years at Wrest Point Casino and The Freeman Gallery. I also exhibited in galleries in Richmond, Melbourne. I mostly sell by word of mouth but i’m looking to have an exhibition in Hobart within the year. I also do commissions.
I recently received a highly commended in the 2019 Kingborough Art Prize.
I have also written and illustrated a children’s book.
